Interview with designer Andre Walker


photography by Heather Brown

What do you wear to work?
Anything comfortable, clean, exciting or newly uncharted territory. Uniform or out of the blue.

What is masculinity?
Humility, vulnerability, invisible beauty, and starting from scratch.

What does it mean to you “acting like a man”?
Capable, useless at times, and gentlemanly ways with inevitable ease.

What is the longest you can maintain eye contact before it’s uncomfortable?
Until eyes water or somewhat forever.

If someone were to pretend to be you for a day, what advice would you give?
Stop looking there and start reading Timothy or Romans in the New Testament again. Continue to keep working more and truly embrace forgiving unbearably stale people/thought processes you have.
